The Shire of Carnarvon has allocated funding for the Harbour Road upgrade project, including upgrading a 1.8km unsealed section of Harbour Road to a sealed standard with a minimum RAV 8 network rating.

The upgrade of Harbour Road is part of a larger project. Main Roads WA has plans to install a roundabout at Robinson and Cornish Street.

Once the roundabout is installed, truck movements into and out of the industrial precinct via that intersection will be more restricted. Harbour Road will be the preferred route for heavy vehicles eliminating the requirement for heavy vehicles to negotiate the roundabout. It will also reduce and/or eliminate heavy vehicle movements on Robinson Street between Cornish Street and the North West Coastal Highway.
